 6:44 am - Sunday - February 19th - GNHS - 39° F, humidity 48%, win 4 mph out of the east by southeast......crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 70° F.  On this date in 2015 TLE and I were having breakfast at Crema Craft Kitchen and Bar in Cottonwood, AZ.....↴

You never know how a day will evolve, and I certainly had no idea about Saturday, as it turned out.  We were on duty at 7:30 am to stage two RZRs for 5 hour rentals beginning at 8 am, and things just took off from there. By 11 am we had rented all 6 units (2 KRXs and 4 RZRs), and then rented one of the RZRs a second time in the afternoon for a total of 7 rentals in one day!  That's the first time since Christmas we have done 7 rentals in one day, but on this day there were no rescues, no accidents, and NO problems whatsoever.

In between rentals I relaxed watching some of the Genesis Open (PGA) tournament.  Tiger had a decent day going 4 under par to finish the day at -3.  He is 11 strokes behind the leader, and probably doesn't have a chance of winning, but in his first start since The Open he made the cut, and after 3 days still looks limping at all.  Very encouraging..... between rentals Kyle installed the new door skins, mud flaps, etc. on RZR #5, so it is back to 100%.....

.....our last rentals returned just after 5 pm, and by the time I finished washing them, and fueling them the sun was setting across the Salton Sea.....

.....considering that the last time we had 7 rentals out there were 3 rescues that day, Saturday was like dream....maybe a litter surreal in its uneventfulness.  We celebrated with some burritos by TLE, and then 5 games of Backgammon on the 'lido deck' for good measure.  The dice favored moi on this evening as I won 3 out of 5 matches.

We have another busy day coming Sunday (today) with 5 rentals booked already, and always the possibility of walkup business on this 3 day Presidents Day weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!
